Banana Pancakes

I don't know why I haven't posted this sooner. One of my favorite musicians is Jack Johnson and I just love his song, "Banana Pancakes."  I've just added the song to my playlist and you can just get caught up in the sweet laziness of it. Here's my tribute to both Jack and banana pancakes :)

2 cups Fiber One™ Complete pancake mix (from 28.3-oz box)

1 1/3 cups cold water

1/2 cup mashed ripe banana

2 tablespoons chopped walnuts


1 firm ripe banana, sliced

2 teaspoons chopped walnuts

1/4 cup fat-free caramel topping

1. Heat skillet or griddle over medium-high heat or to 375°F. Grease with vegetable oil or shortening.

2. In medium bowl, stir pancake mix and water with fork or wire whisk until smooth (batter will be thin). Stir in mashed banana and 2 tablespoons walnuts.

3. For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter into hot greased skillet. Cook until bubbles break on surface and edges just begin to dry. Turn; cook about 1 minute or until bottoms are golden brown.

4. Serve pancakes topped with sliced banana, 2 teaspoons walnuts and the caramel topping.
